Discovery Counseling Center
   Learning to Live Life Well


In Honor of Larry McElvain

Larry McElvain was the Founder and Executive Director of Discovery Counseling Center.

Discovery has grown out of Larry's dream to provide a counseling center that doesn't stop helping people at our doors, but reaches out into the South County community. Larry was passionate about making counseling and education available to all, no matter their circumstances.

Larry's drive to serve the community was limitless. Serving in Leadership Morgan Hill, he helped to start the Community Asset Builders team, Morgan Hill Values Youth Fair, Suicide Prevention team, and was Chaplain for the Morgan Hill Police Department. He served in his home church starting Celebrate Recovery and Stephen's Ministry at Morgan Hill Bible Church and as interim Pastor for several years. His passion to help youth resulted in partnerships in both the Morgan Hill and Gilroy school districts.

Larry was an inspiring mentor, and a dear friend to many. His life has impacted thousands of people. His attitude of selfless giving was a reflection of his faith.

We are grateful his legacy of service to the community will continue through Discovery.
